PALLARES-PIQUER, Marc; PLANELLA-RIBERA, Jordi; CHIVA-BARTOLL, Oscar  y  ALBAR, Javier. The meaning of education: from self as an antidote to globalization. Cinta moebio [online]. 2019, n.65, pp.254-266. ISSN 0717-554X.

We live in times when we have passed from conceiving an act of educating that proposed a medial relationship to an act of globalized education that dictates the dissolution of the subject in a vast and impersonal sphere. This has led us to analyse the self of the students who attend the classrooms today. Theoretical revision based on the hermeneutic analysis of content and confrontation with literature on the topic, the main results focus on a reformulation of the self that goes through the revaluation of the latent complementarity between the inherited subjectivity (from science and recent philosophies) and the subjectivity of hyper-individualism. Despite being in the era of globalization, the article explicates that education would not have many practical executions if it did not develop a certain degree of tropism towards individuality. Consequently, the self, despite being an inhabitant of atomized collectivities, must be consolidated as an antidote, adapted to the segmentation of the ways of life of each context, although this is conditioned by consumerism and by the needs dictated by the (cyber) technological civilization.

Palabras clave : education; globalization; individualism; citizenship.
